165R15 ( metric )tire size cross over

Ok, so the local Pep-Boys is where I used to get the Futura 165R15 metric tires for my front weld wheels. They tell me that the tire size is discontinued and cant even help to cross it over to a conventional tire sizing. They are entirely willing to sell me MT skinnys for 149 a tire though. ( not happening ) So can anyone help me out with another brand tire that is 165R15 or a conventional tire size for my wheels. I want them to be atleast as good as the Futura's were.

Thanks, Bob

I have these on my LX, and their great tires!

I got them from tire rack, but it looks like they don't carry them any longer.
